Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward – and other Trump reviews

Six new books about Trump depict a president isolated by his bizarre antics and surrounded by staff trying to manage his ‘teenage logic’Who’s afraid of Donald Trump? All of us, according to the CBS News correspondent Major Garrett, who believes that we await his next tweeted rant with “frenzied dread”. The squalling baby with the nuclear toy box would be gratified by Garrett’s phrase, and indeed Bob Woodward’s Fear: Trump in the White House (Simon and Schuster £20)takes its title from Trump’s claim in an interview that power depends on frightening people.Yet in Woodward’s meticulous account of office intrigues, the president’s men don’t seem to be trembling with fright. What they mostly feel is contempt for Trump or pity for his ignorance and the “teenage logic” of his obsessively vented grievances. Hence their deft “administrative coup d’état”: by purloining documents from Trump’s desk or slow-walking his intemperate orders, his aides have effectively benched him. Continue reading...

Mike Pence: power, religion and America's 'shadow president'

One new book about the VP is a hagiography, one a hatchet job – neither appreciates what the rise of the former Indiana governor says about faith and the nationAmerica’s semi-civil civil war continues, with religion a proxy for the political divide. In 2016, white evangelicals gave more than 80% of their vote to Donald Trump, a share even greater than among white working-class voters. On the other end of the spectrum, religious “nones” went for Hillary Clinton by better than 40 points.

Michelle Wolf: ‘It’s weird that Trump doesn’t have a sense of humour’

As host of the White House correspondents’ dinner, comic Michelle Wolf insulted Trump, his inner circle and the press. What happened next?In the past 35 days, Michelle Wolf has hosted the annual White House correspondents’ dinner, scandalised Washington DC, outraged the president, run a 50-mile ultramarathon, launched her own Netflix show, and turned herself into a household name. Yet “the hardest thing I ever did in my life”, according to the comedian, was none of these, but “getting myself fired on purpose.”Five years ago, she was working for a tech company, but knew she wanted to be a comedian. The plan was to get paid for as long as possible, while she worked on her act, until they sacked her. “I don’t like being lazy, but I was like: ‘Just do less and less work.’ I was writing jokes all day, just constantly writing jokes.” She nearly lost her nerve when she received a formal warning. “It was the worst feeling. I hate disappointing people. I almost gave up then and there.” But she stuck at the plan, and “eventually I got fired, which was great”. She celebrated with cocktails. Continue reading...
